How many treatments will I need?
A complete history is taken during the initial consultation as well as a physical assessment of the effected area. Recommendations for treatment planning are made at that time.

Is Electrolysis painful?
The sensation felt during treatments is best described as a "quick, hot pinch", which is the split  second impulse of heat being applied to the hair root.

How should I care for my skin after having Electrolysis?
The treated areas should be kept clean by using soap or a mild skin cleanser for 24 hours after a treatment. Rinsing the area with cold water after cleansing is recommended. You will receive written post-treatment instructions during your initial visit.
